Nigeria Beat Honduras 3-2 To Win Bronze

Nigeria has won the bronze medal in men's football today at Rio with a 3-2 victory over Honduras.

Sadiq Umar got the first goal after 34 minutes and his namesake Aminu Umar doubled their lead two minutes into the second half.

Sadiq Umar scored his second and Nigeria's third seven minutes later when he controlled another good pass from the captain John Obi Mikel and hammered home from 15 yards (13.7m).

The goal appeared to have guaranteed victory but Honduras came back into the game and threatened to win their first Olympic football medal. Eventually, Nigeria won 3-2.Big congrats to us.
